Horse-Canada.com is pleased to introduce two new blogs to our line-up: The Rusty Stirrup, by Alexa Cheater, and Blazing a Trail, by Leanna Marchant.

After wrapping up her “mostly unremarkable junior career,” Alexa Cheater opted to pursue higher education. Now, more than a decade later, she’s gearing up to get back in the saddle and wants to take you along for the ride! Read about her first attempts at horse-canada.com/rusty-stirrup.

Then, join distance rider Leanna Marchant and her horse, Samsons Fire, as they gear up for the 100-mile endurance race at the 2014 World Equestrian Games. Follow their progress, and get a behind the scenes look at what it takes to ride at the highest level of this sport for both horse and rider at horse-canada.com/blazing-a-trail.
